Cheshire wins National Award for pothole repairs

Cheshire West and Chester Council have won a top national award for reported pothole repairs.

The Pot Hole Response honour is from CTC – the UK National Cyclists Organisation. The Council also topped the CTC league for both the ‘speed of fixing’ and ‘quality of repairs’ category in the People’s Vote section for pothole repairs.

This success results from the beginnings of an ambitious investment programme within highways to be delivered over 10 years. Utilising a combination of traditional methods and new treatments for pothole repairs, the council are renewing and maintaining the highway infrastructure. One of these new treatments is Rejuvopatch.

Over the last two years, JPCS has worked in partnership with the Council and the the Term Maintenance Contractor, applying the Rejuvopatch product. Rejuvopatch is a unique pothole repairs and carriageway defect repair system, providing a flexible, durable and cost efficient repair.

Kevin Carrol, Highway Manager for the Council comments; “Our focus is on asset management and value for money.  We undertake permanent repairs where and whenever possible making sure that consideration is given to the treatments to ensure that they are appropriate to the road type and the longevity of the treatment.  The Rejuvopatch product has flexibility and has been used over a number of years in the urban areas with great success.”

Peter Shone, Managing Director for JPCS said: “As a company based in Cheshire, we are delighted that our Council have won this award and extremely proud to be associated in to helping deliver this success. Our company vision has been demonstrated so clearly and we look forward to continuing to work with Cheshire West and to celebrating further joint successes.”
